New Customs: Hollywood Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior from Halloween Havoc June 7, 2009Posted by skribbel24 in Customs.
In the build-up to their match at Halloween Havoc ’98, Warrior played mind games with Hogan by projecting backstage “apparitions” of himself in a mirror that only Hogan could see. The WCW storyline portrayed Hogan as “cracking up” in seeing these apparitions. However, the announcers could also see them, as well as the television audience.
In the Halloween Havoc match, the timing of the maneuvers and hits was poor; an arm injury that Warrior received at War Games further slowed the action. An attempt to “blind” Warrior with a fireball backfired when Hogan faced complications igniting a piece of flash paper, causing the fire to go up in Hogan’s face instead. The match finally came to an end when Horace Hogan hit Warrior in the back with a chair while Eric Bischoff had referee Nick Patrick distracted. Hogan then scored the pinfall, ending the match.
